Pastor Rick Baldwin was born and raised in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia and attributes his love of adventure to his country upbringing. According to Pastor Baldwin, his greatest adventure began when he was introduced to Jesus Christ at the age of 16. Following his young conversion, he was able to see God's miraculous deliverance and restoration in the lives of his family members and was soon afterward called into ministry to partner with God in bringing the same hope and restoration into the lives of others.
While at Southeastern Bible College, he met Debi, his beautiful wife and ministry partner of over 35 years. Shortly thereafter, they were blessed with their three children, Shannan, Josh and Alesha. In the course of time, God has multiplied their blessings by the addition of three wonderful grandchildren, Steven, Sierra, and Samara. According to Pastor Baldwin, "My family is another gift from God that enriches my life with treasures beyond this world's riches and continues to make my life journey one of excitement."
While his ministry focus for the past 28 years has been pastoring local churches in Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Florida, his passion for missions work has led him to coordinate outreaches within his pastoring communities, as well as participate in worldwide missions work. His missions ministry focus has led him to Venezuela, Siberia, Mexico, Cuba, Honduras, Philippines and Guatemala. Through his time spent in ministering to the people of these regions, he received the revelation that God loves all people and the journey is not complete until each person has had the opportunity to hear the message of God's great love and become involved in God's great plan.
In December of 2011, Pastor Baldwin and Debi's journey led them to Golden Gate Assembly of God in Naples, Florida. The Baldwins have been lovingly welcomed with open arms into this church family and they eagerly look forward to the future with expectancy for the things God has planned as they continue on the journey that never ends.

Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).
Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
